I just wanted to write a post listing some things that Audrey does that I don’t want to forget… Perhaps I won’t forget, I’ll probably bore her with tales of her Hoover cuddles for years, but just in case…
Audrey’s eyes. The beautiful shape, the way they smile when she smiles, her eyelashes (that she inherited from me!).
The way she taps my should with her hand when I’m carrying her.
The way she reaches up with both arms to be picked up.
The way she dances… It’s a sight to behold! Rocking, head banging, hand wiggling… She is going to classes as soon as she can stand!
Kissing her forehead and soft hair.
When I ask her for a kiss and she cups my face with both her hands, so she can give me a full-on slobbery number.
Her sneezes. So tiny.
The way she picks up blueberries and eats them whilst maintaining eye contact with me the whole time.
The way she signs “finished” with a couple of turning fists.
Peekaboo with her own hands – it will never fail to make me proud that she figured out how to do that.
The way she claps, smiles and makes a positive “uhh” noise when she’s proud of herself (usually when we’ve praised her for drinking her water!).
The way her nose changes shape with a certain cheeky smile.
The way she giggles when she sees us putting on the sling/getting our coats on (because she knows she’s going out).
Her feet wriggling with excitement when food is coming.
The cuteness of her bottom lip before she cries.
Hoover cuddles! (Audrey is a little scared of the vacuum cleaner and clings to you like her life depends on it whilst it’s noisily on).
How she smiles and dances when I sing for her – even for the silliest made up songs.
The way she brushes her own hair, then holds the brush out to brush mine!
And many more… But that will do for now! X
